Lecture no. 16 from the course: Understanding the Old Testament
Taught by Professor Robert D. Miller II | 27 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
Examine the three distinct sections of Isaiah: first, the prophet’s stern denunciation of social injustice, and his intimation of a new era of peace under a messianic king; next, a promise of restoration and redemption for Israel, through the figure of the “Suffering Servant”; and finally, the vision of a post-exile Jerusalem, where all peoples are included within the worship of God.
